For Real

Yes, I'm still alive. Technically, anyway. But that's not the important thing.

The important thing is that Peanut is currently in the OR having her surgery. Yes, really.

It seemed kind of weird for it to be happening on this day of all days, but Karen is getting baby Maya today (actually has her by now), so I decided that since she is retaking the day for joy that the least we could do is get over the freaky feeling and get on with our lives. I just wish I could have gotten some of the really good drugs they gave Peanut to calm her down beforehand.

God is getting a whole lot of extra prayers today, but I am hoping He still hears my little one about having her hip where it is supposed to be. It is a small thing in the grand scheme of things, but anything helps.

I'm so glad they gave you an early morning schedule this time -- and it sounds as if things are already well underway. Phew. Can't wait for the next post to say -- ALL's WELL!!

I know what you mean about the date too -- but, I had to get over my own superstitions when in the 13th year of my marriage, I moved into a house #13, and then delivered a healthy gorgeous little girl. 13 is now my LUCKY number!

Good luck, God Bless, and all my fingers and toes are crossed!! -- JB

Oh yay!

I've been wondering where you were, and I'm glad to see that your catching-up post has such good news in it. I'll be thinking of hte Peanut today and I hope that all goes well for her.
